I hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas and most definitely a Happy New Year. I have a feeling '08 will be filled with controversies, re-counts, and other crimes that have plagued our celebs and politicians! It means that I will have a plethora of things to give my opinion on.

Some sad news has occurred around the world, Pakistan's former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto died Thursday as Party security adviser says she was shot in the neck and chest as she got into her vehicle. The suicide bomber/assassin then blew himself up. Twenty other people were also killed during the explosion! It's news like this that makes me feel very fortunate and really appreciate America, even with all the injustices and horrid crimes that take place. People in other countries can't even have the freedom to express their political views nor be apart of a democracy. As the primaries are slowly among us, we need to really think of the kind of leader we want for this country. In the midst of an Iraq War that hasn't ceased and a justice system riddled with controversy, it's imperative that he or she is the best candidate and not the face of either party. I hope all of you reading this will vote and realize that we are truly blessed with many freedoms.
